Fenshallit was elated to see Rain, and rushed to him as soon as her business with the workers had been finished. The lovely white haired lady moved in her expansive regal gown in a fluid fashion that caused her skirt to appear to only float over the ground. Fenshallit was not born into wealth, but had spent a lifetime serving the wife of a noble lady from the plane of Earth. The wife of Jackal thus knew how to act even though she had never been in a situation forcing such rules upon her. She had obviously spent time practicing however, because now returned to youth and given a position of nobility she was able to act on her knowledge. The affection showed to her husband’s friend was not a polite formality however, but a close affectionate hug was given to him.
The present story is developed further, then another member of our cast is located.

Free original adventure - Frozen Whispers|
Posted by Atlan on Saturday, May 29, 2004 (17:56:05) (722 reads) 5 comments |
WotC offers a new free adventure for download on their website. It is present as 2.1 Mb zipped .pdf file that contains the adventure and is suited for 4 3rd level characters.
Many hunters choose to try their mettle against the Timberway lion -- a native of the Timberway Forest whose pelt brings top coin in the surrounding frontier towns. Those who make extended trips into the forest often use Bluerock Lodge, a retreat built just for hunters, as their base. But this season, Timberway lions have become quite rare. Why the sudden drop in population? Have they simply been overhunted, or is something more sinister afoot?
If you are interested now you can find it at the url provided below, otherwise take a short look in the expanded text for a short preview of the adventure - also taken from WotC's site.
Here is the URL: Frozen Whispers - Adventure for 3rd level characters

In this third part of Skip William's examination of polymorphing in it's many forms you get a very good insight into the inner workings of the spell "Polymorph".
Among other things you will learn which subtype abilities your get e.g. which immunities do you get for polymorphing into an angelic being. At the end of this extensive list of subtypes you get a practical example to check if you understood everything correctly.

Tales by TerishD : The Curse of a Home - One|

Rain stared at the bog before him looking for signs of possible trouble. The stream of water that passed through the rift that he was presently calling home was normally a friendly sight. The gurgling rush of water entered from a small cave at the western tip of the fault in the earth’s crust and left through another at the eastern tip. The western cave was large enough to crawl into, and he and Jackal had once done so to ease their minds of the opening into the dark not also being an egress for monsters. The water coming from the cave was fresh enough, and the cave itself did not show any signs of it providing comfort to any vile creature. A metal grate made of loosely joined rods was found torn from its place of being a barrier against any monsters coming into the rift from below, and both the elf cleric and the human bard had blamed the removal on the undead that had recently called this place home. After resetting the grate, both had gone to the eastern end of their break in the earth. The water there simply drained back into the depths through a natural hole. No grate was here probably because it would only be a problem as leaves and detritus would accumulate on it and block the escape of the water. Only so much water could exit the hole however, and the recent deluge had formed a substantial body of water over the drain.
Thus starts a new Jackal and Rain tale. I want this one to be a little more demanding than those in the past, but only time will tell.

Chapter Twenty-One - Part 2
The men did not move much during the next couple of weeks. They just could not do it with the lady acting as she was. Both Oggelly and Feladin managed to see their friend in the little elf form, but the true sightings were rare. They mostly went out hunting to make certain that they had food, and to leave the lady alone.
Sylvia willingly took care of the camp. The horse was well tended with its entire coat regularly brushed along with flowers placed in its mane and tail. Complete meals were managed as the plants were further tested. She took apart one of her dresses and made a new shirt for each of the men.
The final details are handled with our heroes.

Gearing up for Ebberron - Monsters of Ebberron|
Posted by Atlan on Sunday, May 16, 2004 (07:30:15) (1224 reads) 6 comments |
The upcoming, new campaign setting Ebberron will of course have it's own, special monsters that call that world their home. In this new article of the Gearing up for Ebberron we are presented with a few of these monsters unique to that campaign (at least unique until you decide to adopt them for your own campaings ) - 4 to be exact.
As a little bonus each of the monsters is commented upon by Matt Smith. These coments give a good summary of the dangers and tactics each of these monsters can present, so don't skip them totally.
